A newlywed couple approached us to build a coffee table for their new apartment! After talking with them about the size and style they wanted, this is what we came up with! They got married in a barn, with the whole wedding being rustic, and their apartment is contemporary. So this goes along with their style nicely ;)

This was a budget friendly project, with the materials list consisting of one sheet of OSB, one 2 x 4, a dowel, and some screws, brad nails, wood glue, sandpaper, and lacquer. As you can see in the video, many tools were used, but you could get away with more basic tools if it's all you have.

This was our first mid-century modern inspired build! It was lots of fun, and as always, you seem to learn something with each new project. They loved the coffee table, and we look forward to them enjoying it for years to come!
